Synopsis: Set in Lisbon, Portugal at an institute for the blind where children are taught to live with their disability, to not take risks, and to be comfortable at all times. Ian a non-conformist teacher who is also blind is hired at the school and introduces revolutionary methods: Rejecting the use of a cane, Ian teaches the children to achieve spatial orientation by using all of their senses including moving by the resonance of sound vibrations (echolocation), instinct, and the creative use of their imagination. Confident and even slightly over-aggressive, Ian charms the children and gives them a reason to hope, though they are always testing and questioning him to prove that he is one of them and never seem quite convinced of his sincerity. Ian's sessions take place right under the window of Eva (Alexandra Maria Lara), an adult patient who never leaves her room and does not speak to anybody. Surprisingly, she becomes one of his most responsive students and there is even a hint of romance. Th

So who has drunk the milk?

Wait. Move the cane a bit forward.


Denilson, come and see yourself!

I'm coming...

You're ready?

What do you have for me this time?


We wanted to try,

if you use the cane when nobody sees you.

How should I know

if nobody sees me?

I'm blind.

So why don't you use the cane?

A blind man doesn't need a cane.

If only he's not lame.

If you had the cane,

you wouldn't have fallen down.

I told you I didn't use the cane.

Some people claim you're lying.

That's why you spread a fly line

to check me?

And if I knocked my teeth out?

So a cane would be useful?

It's useful for hitting in the desk as well...

So maybe you can see?

Watch out, it can break.

It's not your cane...

Nothing is happening.

Nobody's here.

If nobody's here,

who trims the roses?

How do you know

those are roses?

What else can you trim here?

Who would go to find out

what do they trim here?


Go then.

Be aware of the thorns.

I'm going, too.


I'll go, too.

There's nobody by the roses.

You looked too low.

This man was standing on the ladder.

I pricked myself three times

at least...

Mother Marie!

Yes, sir?

What are you doing down there?

Stop, Antonio...

My God, you're scratched all over.

What are you doing here?

My God, come with me.

Ian, Tom, come closer, please.

Didn't you prick yourself?

Don't cry.

It's alright.

You didn't prick.

What are you doing?

We were tracing the gardener?

It's good he's not here.

You've stomped his roses...

How come? He has to be here!

You need to be blingfolded

to take part in the lesson.

To my office, please.

The outside lessons

need the preparation.

This group requires at least...

... three sighted attendants.

You are not allowed to walk

patients on your own!
